Tennessee Government Liability Act

Tennessee law provides special procedures and rules for individuals who suffer personal injury due to the negligence of state and local workers. Any personal injury claim can have difficult obstacles for an individual to face when seeking compensation for an injury. When a government worker is involved in an accident, the knowledge and experience of a personal injury lawyer in handling claims against the government can have a significant impact on the outcome of the case.

Suing State And Local Government Agencies For Negligence

Many state and local government entities in Tennessee have a fleet of vehicles for employees to use when carrying out essential functions of their jobs. When a government worker acts negligently and causes an injury-producing accident, the injured individual should not have to bear the burden of the full costs and losses that result from the crash. The state places caps on the amount of damages available under the Tennessee Government Liability Act.
